[racket] How to handle exit of a GRacket application?

You probably want to augment `on-close' in `frame%', for example:
#lang racket/gui

 (new (class frame% (super-new)
        (define/augment (on-close)
          (displayln "Exiting...")))
      [label "Frame"]
      [width 400] [height 200])
 show #t)

which on my machine prints "Exiting..." when I click to closing cross.
